You may have noticed more blueberry farms below the Ridge. As spring approaches, albeit late, farms will soon be producing blueberries. With that, comes the possibility of an increase in cannon noise.
A group called “Ban the Cannons” are opposed to the use of these bird scare devices. In contacting them and the Farm Industry Review Board, we’ve learned that a review is underway. The Fraser Valley Regional District and the Ministry of Agriculture have co-funded a study to determine the effectiveness of these devices. Results will be available soon and found on their website: www.al.gov.bc.ca
We will continue to follow this story and urge those who want to get involved to contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
